Boise Artists Get RAW at the Powerhouse

Thursday, Aug. 16


Boise artists will get RAW once again Thursday, Aug. 16, with Radiate, the next iteration of the RAW Artists visual arts series at the Powerhouse Event Center. RAW showcases local talent in a variety of media, including film, fashion, music, and visual and performance arts. Events occur monthly and feature different up-and-coming artists.

Host Dylan Haas will present the evening's combination of music, dance and entertainment, including the short film Crawlspace by All Fools Productions.

The inaugural RAW showcase in Boise took place May 17 and featured a catwalk for models to strut, Red Light burlesque, comedians and a host of attendees dressed to the nynes.

This month's installment will feature the astounding acrobatic abilities of Ophidia Studio's pole artists, Native fashion design, hair styling by Lunatic Fringe Salon, visual art by Alexandria Claar, photography by Sour Bamboo Pictures and a whole bunch of other neat-o artists.

Music by SXSW music fest veteran Muffalo, singer and guitarist Cassie Lewis and electronica beatmaker Mike "DJ Myko" Olivieri will round out the evening.

Cocktail attire is requested and the event is for ages 18 and older. Alcohol will be available with ID.
